It will be recalled that a group of unknown gunmen had last week invaded the Gateway Polytechnic Saapade Isara, Ode Remo, raping students and dispossessing them of their belongings.

According to the police, the suspects at first denied, but a victim of their last robbery operation identified one out of the three-man gang of young men terrorising Gateway Polytechnic.

“In response to recent shooting incidents at Gateway Polytechnic, a proactive operation was conducted based on intelligence.

“On the 27th of November 2023, the Police, in collaboration with other security agencies, implemented a stop and search operation in Ode Remo and Ipara area. During the operation, a gang of three suspected armed young men were intercepted on a motorcycle.

“The suspects attempted to evade arrest by resorting to violent means to escape but were eventually apprehended.

“The suspects arrested have been profiled as Taiwo Oredoyin ‘M’ (27 years old), Taiwo Kuti ‘M’ (35 years old), and Folorunsho Saheed ‘M’ (36 years old), all belonging to Isara town in Ogun State. Upon conducting a search on them, police officers discovered one locally fabricated pistol with two live cartridges, as well as two Samsung phones, in their possessions,” the statement read in part.

DAILY POST reports that the suspects are being interrogated as part of a preliminary investigation and will be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department before they are arraigned in court.
